COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We produce a traditional styled Irish Stout that is served using beer gas to produce that familiar creamy pour. Our black stout has a roasted malt flavour and a hint of toasted walnuts and choclate in the finish. Select imported hops are used to dry out the finish of this ale.

This stout poured a deep black colour with a creamy, light brown head. To the nose there are scents of coffee, smoke, earthy aromas and light cocoa. First sip had a very creamy mouthfeel with flavours of roasted malt, smoke, coffee and burnt toast. Finish is smokey on the palate

As is often the case with Mill Street beers Iím tempted to rate this extremely low out of spite. I will attempt to restrain myself. Pour is a typical nitrogen stout pour, ie it looks like a Guinness. Nose is faint chocolate and coffee, muted roasted notes hiding under a blanket of foam. So it smells like a Guinness. Taste is light chocolate/coffee and roasted grain with a finish thatís nicely dry. Flavour profile overall is nice, but subdued - so it tastes like a Guinness, complete with that flat mouthfeel thatís typical of nitrogen cans. Overall another blah entry from Mill Street.

Canmoore (256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours jet black, with a thick mocha head. Aroma includes light coffee, chocolate , and mash notes. The palate is a little light, with notes of weak coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and a slight bitter finish. Not bad, this is basically a clone of Guinness.

Can from LCBO. Pours dark, dark brown with a red edge and an off white head. Light malty aroma, not big. Light to medium body, a bit thin, mild carbonation. Treacle, toffee, light some, toast, light coffee and a little dark choc. Good.

Tmoney99 (10650) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Can shared by b3shine. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture with soft carbonation. Moderate toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable dry stout.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Visual: Aluminum can. Pours ultra dark brown/black with bubbles clinging near the bottom-base of the glass, virtually no head, a very thin ringed retention, almost no activity other than a few bubbles surfacing. Nose: medium roasted malts, burntness. (lvl-6)-pungency. Attack: thin-watery, sharp nitrogenated mouthfeel Mid-palate: med-high sourness, (lvl-4)-sweetness (MAIN) roasted malts, coffee Finish: roasted coffee exhale, bittersweet malty finish. Summary: The watery mouthfeel coupled with the almost flat mouthfeel put me off on this one. Flavour of roasted malt is ok but texturally unbalanced on the sour side.

440 ml can from an LCBO in Toronto. A pitch black colour pour with an impressive, nitro-powered, milk chocolate coloured head about an inch thick; rich drinking chocolate aroma; a thin milky body with a pleasnt coffee taste, perhaps a little too sweet though; and a dry chocolate milk finish with a touch of bitterness. Overall rather good.

Can. A good middle of the road stout. I prefer my stouts from a bottle, they donít feel as proud coming from a can. Has a strong roasted coffee taste lots of dark chocolate bitterness. Has a nice thick creamy mouth feel and finishes dry like the style implies. A tasty dry stout.
